This cleaver from Wusthof easily cuts through meat, cartilage, bone, and tough vegetables. Chop meat for stew or bones for stock, and use the back of the cleaver to tenderize cuts or the flat of the cleaver to smash garlic cloves. The wide thick blade stands up to a variety of foods and can be used to transfer ingredients from your cutting board to pots, pans, and bowls.
The blade is forged from X50CrMoV15 steel and sharpened with Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) for superior blade sharpness. It offers excellent edge retention with a Rockwell hardness of 58. This high-carbon stainless steel includes vanadium for durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum for hardness and corrosion resistance. Full tang construction offers balance and strength while cutting. The triple-riveted knife handle is made from a highly durable synthetic that resists fading and discoloration, with a full bolster and finger guard.
